We have over two hundred years of successful experience with homeopathy, and it is inarguable fact that those who use it feel a benefit. A study out of Harvard University shows that while homeopathy use is still relatively uncommon in the USA, lower than in European countries, "users perceive it as helpful." Furthermore, this positive perception was higher among people who visited a professional homeopath versus those who bought something over-the-counter on their own.1
Another meta-study identified 118 randomised trials, 16 of which, for a total of 2,617 evaluated patients, fulfilled the criteria for inclusion and were ultimately reviewed. Although the strength of the findings was low because of the low methodological quality of the trials, there was some evidence that homeopathic treatments are more effective than placebo.2
We can always use more randomized, controlled studies with academic rigor where expert homeopaths work with expert researchers to prove that homeopathy works well for specific areas of study. The good news, according to another recent study, is that research quality and quantity have both improved in recent years.3 We are headed the right direction.
